Mr. Littman was educated at The Bolles School, Jacksonville, Florida; the University of Florida and Stetson University College of Law.
In war, he served as a Field Artillery officer in the United States Army in the Pacific Theater of Operations during and after the end of WW II.
Subsequently, he married Evangeline Janney Johnson Littman who preceded him in death in 1994, and they initially made their home at the family farm at Littman, Florida.
Mr. Littman studied law beginning in 1960, graduated with honors, and joined his father in the practice of law in Stuart, Florida at the firm of (Judge A. O.) Kanner and Littman.
The Littman and Littman law firm had a civil practice and served the Martin County Schools and many other government, law enforcement, institutional, business and individual clients. Mr. Littman was appointed for a time by the Governor to serve as a special State Attorney, prosecuting public corruption cases. His law firm continues to this day, practicing as Littman, Sherlock and Heims, by his partners and friends, Virginia Sherlock and Howard Heims in Stuart, Florida.
After his 1989 retirement from actively practicing law Mr. Littman moved to St. Mary's Road, Hillsborough, NC and was just as immersed in community activities as he had been professionally.
